EUGENE MCCARTHY AND RICHARD PRYOR HAVE DIED

just in case you missed it. McCarthy had the Democratic nomination stolen from him by RFK back in 1968. A lot of good that did RFK. And Pryor? Only the funniest, hippest guy who ever lived.
Rest in Peace dudes.

clean Gene McCarthy was the only politician who ever connected with me on a deep human level when i heard him speak for the very first time. i don't think he was well suited to the world of criminality and corruption that is so prevalant in the halls of the power structure , and he said as much in his own words in later life .
well Eugene , i hope you and John L. can have good conversation from time to time in the new astral world.

Peace
